    We will all have to get our heads together and sort out another NW thread in the near future as the weather is "improving" slowly... Maybe we can sort a venue that might encourage Manchester, Stockport as well as Crewe and Cheshire... Would be good to see a large(ish) turnout

    don't mean to hijack this thread so mods delete this post if you see fit

    Deffo up for that Kevin, Mr OBDs RR day at Irlam would be pretty central, but it doesn't seem to be getting off the ground
    Tatton Park perhaps???

    Krispy Kremes (donughts) at Trafford Park worked well for the TT forum I used to frequent

    Would be nice to do a Bimmer meet round there (and local to me )

    Lets get something organised before end of June ideally - the Alpina restoration will be well complete by then and will be re-sold by end of this summer (in MINT condition) as I don't have anywhere to keep over next winter and another project is always around the corner.

    Note to slavering hoards - start saving and she can be yours!

    Great thread! I have completed the clicking test by putting the car into reverse and listening to each sensor for the clicking sound and it seems as though all sensors are clicking. Would appreciate if someone could suggest what to check next as I get the long beep when putting into reverse so from what I have previously read this means there is a problem with one or more of the sensors.
    Thanks in advance

    If all 4 are clicking then all should be ok, are you sure the sensors weren't wet at the time as you get the same fault when they have water drops on them,.. or dirty maybe?

    Sorry it's been a while!
